Chance to test Zoom working correctly prior will also be available.

Neil started making hats for theatre productions in the mid 1970’s while at Uni and gradually increased his knowledge working with both Betty Viazim (theatre) and Jenifer Nairn (fashion) ….. as well as a stint at Opera Australia …. and the good old trial and error approach in these early stages.
With over 40 yrs working in Millinery - Neil has seen many fashion changes and dressed everyone from Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to our own Queen of the track , Gay Waterhouse.
David Jones carried his label for over 20 yrs and many boutiques all across Australia have carried his hats and headpieces over the years.
